Concerning war, the military industrial complex - which is really what this thread is all about, I just saw a netflix original movie, based on a true story, very accurately told and well acted to boot, which I think you might want to see - and to consider.
What we have here is revisionist history, long overdue, from 1961, JFK in office, Dag Hammarskjold Secretary General of the UN - and big money and strategic resources (uranium, cobalt, copper…), in the Congo - Katanga province.
There is nefarious work at the top - an Irish general, an Irish academic, and then there is A company, until lately dishonored, all in the name of political ‘reality’.
I think it adds perspective - this type of thing has been going on for a long time.
Dag Hammarskjold dies in a mysterious plane crash - flying to the Congo for a boots on the ground look at the situation.
Absolutely a must see if, like myself, you were not already familiar with this story:
